As you may remember, I got an iPod Nano for Christmas. This little postage stamp size miracle holds all of my favorite songs for walking, plus pod casts, and has an FM radio, which I use at soccer matches for listening to our favorite radio commentator while watching the play on the field. I plug in one ear and follow along with the stadium chants with the other.
Last week, son Jake got a song stuck in his head over some comment made, and wanted to hear the lyrics. I said, "I have that on my iPod".
In order to hear it I had to plug him in with the ear buds, because I don't have an external speaker system for my iPod and I don't have the right cable to plug it into the stereo.
I got to thinking that a speaker system would be good to have. Our tuner is old and not easily compatible with new jack systems, so I went on line to see what I could find.
I found this! I ordered it from Amazon and it arrived yesterday.
It's a small, zippered case that the iPod fits into and plugs into. It has a rechargeable battery and plays about two hours on a charge. It can be recharged by plugging it into a computer, or I can use my iPod adaptor and plug it right into a wall outlet.
So here you have it: my mini-computer, my mini-music player, and my mini -speaker system.
